The headline isn’t an interpretation or an exaggeration. It is literally what White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough told CBS’ Chris Jansing Thursday.
See for yourself.
Jansing asked McDonough, “Is there one thing you can say to American voters they’re going to see that’s different, given the message they sent on Tuesday?”
McDonough replied, “They’re going to see Washington working better if this president has his way. And that’s what he’s going to do.”
That’s quite an answer coming from a party just got shelled, pulverized and overrun because the man in the White House has become a toxic brand.
McDonough’s comments are one more signal, as if we needed one, that Obama intends to spend his last two years in office provoking constitutional battles and crises. It’s just not in his nature to change or compromise.
